Grants for financial literacy programs in Wisconsin

5-minute-financial-activitiesWe love this idea. We'd love to see it happen in other states. Please pass it onto your FACS and business teachers...

The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) announced a $250,000 statewide grant program to encourage Wisconsin’s K-12 school districts to incorporate personal finance education into their curricula.  Funding for the program will be provided by DFI, which through its Office of Financial Literacy is charged with promoting financial literacy in Wisconsin.

As an added bonus, Governor Walker has proclaimed April 5-12 as Money Smart Week Wisconsin. Way to get people thinking about the importance of personal finance plans and the value of teaching our students to understand personal finance, budgets and money!
